Update UK G1 not showing paid apps

 I've been playing with a UK G1 which has received the 1.1 firmware 
update (TC9), but it would seem that it can't access paid for apps.

I'd appreciate someone else verifying this on another update UK G1, but 
when I switched the view to show paid apps only all the categories just 
have a message saying;

"No matching content in Android Market".

If someone could check this I'd appreciate it because at the moment I'm 
not sure if it is something wrong with the G1 I was using (signal 
strength, etc.), or does the UK TC9 update not bring paid-apps to UK users?

 I can confirm this is the same on my UK G1.

The market is no longer Beta, but no paid app's yet. My guess is the
update means UK G1's can now support paid app's, but we're still
waiting on Google to flick the switch and make them available.

Hopefully, not too much longer to wait.

 Same here!

Now where did I put that "Google, switch em on or else" email  :-)

 My theory is that RC9 means that all Google now needs to do is flick a
switch and the UK will see paid apps without needing e.g. RC10.

But I don't think Google are ready to flick the switch. They still
want to sort out any teething issues they had from opening the paid
market in the US.

My paid app available US only has had several Google issues, including
users not being able to download updates, users not being able to get
refunds within 24 hours, users not being able to transfer apps to new
phone, etc.

Google will want to sort out these issues before they open up the
market too widely so I can understand why they are not giving any
definite dates.

Which is great. I've said it already and can't stress enough that
perfectly working Market application is billions of times more
important than meeting *any* deadline.

Looks like we're in for a long wait then...

1. Missing lock and unlock methods in android.hardware.Camera?


Methods "lock" and "unlock" (and a few others) in the
android.hardware.Camera class are missing in the Linux version of the
android.jar file for SDK 1.6. Eclipse complained that they were
missing, and I checked by opening the jar file and found them missing.
I have found them in SDK 2.0.1 though.

To anyone who is developing on similar platform (Linux, SDK 1.6),
would you check your jar file and let me know whether yours contains
the "lock" and "unlock" methods please? Thanks.
